South Orangetown Central School District

The South Orangetown Central School District welcomed more than 200 students in grades K-8 to its sixth annual Summer STEAM Camp on Tuesday!

“Our students arrived excited and enthusiastic to meet old and new friends and to learn new things!” reported Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Brian Culot, Ed.D. “Many have attended STEAM Camp before and look forward to a stress- and test-free experience and a really fun time. We’re so grateful to be back in-person and thank the South Orangetown community for supporting this program each year!”

Daily sessions jam-packed with hands-on activities focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math enrichment are led by more than 25 SOCSD teachers and staff members, assisted by 16 Tappan Zee High School volunteers. Projects promote creativity, collaboration and exploration in a small-group setting, with campers rotating among sessions which include kite design, Sphero soccer, cyanotype printing, Lego construction, chalk art, rainbow mask tie-dye, active art and topographic map design.

STEAM Camp is coordinated by Instructional Science Coach Samantha Levine (K-8) School Social Worker Jessenia Cursio with support from Office of Curriculum and Instruction staff members Ann Quigley and Laura DiMaio. This year’s program began June 29 and ends July 9.
